Hi Mark,
you forgot to add some old info by Rollo:
"Originally posted by Rollo:
Newspaper reports from 1918 are also listing her as Yeager. She was still Yeager (or Yager) as of early July in 1918.
From 1930 Census records and Heritage Quest I have gathered the following:
She was born Born c 1892 or 1893 in Missouri-parents born in New York.
Her spouse was Jack Alfred Rameson (1874-1944)
Sons Jack (b 3 Dec 1919) and Fred circa 1921. There were other young Rameson's in the household much older, presumably Adelaide's stepchildren.
There is a Jack A Rameson III who is a probate lawyer. Odds are he is Adelaide's grandchild. Perhaps he could give us full details if someone wants to contact him."

Now I think to have found her maiden name (and other info).

The NYT December 22, 1918 writes of her as Mrs. Jack Rameson, so we can put her marriage on late 1918 (their first son born a year later).

I have found her grave, where she is Adelaide Rameson Taylor

In 1911 in the Western Champs. there was an Adelaide Taylor runner-up in Doubles...
1911 results

In 1912 there is Adelaide Chatfield Taylor RU in the Florida State Champs.
1912 results
and Chatfield could be the second name of Adelaide, as a C. is in this Census record:
(where there is also a record with an A. instead of C., and where her husband seems born in 1877 instead of 1874, but it could be an error)

(in 1913 a Mrs Yager appears first time, in the Missouri Valley Doubles Championship:
1913 results
so we can put her first marriage circa 1913)

In confirmation that this Adelaide Rameson Taylor is our tennis player, the cemetery plot is the same for her, her husband Rameson, and their first son:

So, we have now these info:

United States
Born 1892
Died 9 December 1973
Married (1) W.W.Yager, circa late 1912 or early 1913
Married (2) Jack Alfred Rameson, Sr. (1874-1944), circa late 1918
